The Biomolecular Systems Cluster is located within the Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB) and emphasizes the structure, function, dynamics, interactions, and interconversions of biological molecules. The context for such studies can range from investigations of individual macromolecules to the large-scale integration of metabolic and energetic processes. Research supported by this cluster includes development of cutting-edge technologies integrating theoretical, computational, and experimental approaches to the study of biological molecules and their functional complexes; mechanistic studies of the regulation and catalysis of enzymes and RNA, and higher-order characterization of the biochemical processes by which all organisms acquire, transform, and utilize energy from substrates. This cluster emphasizes the importance of multi-disciplinary
research carried out at the interfaces of biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, and engineering. This cluster includes the scientific themes of molecular biochemistry, metabolic biochemistry (contact: Parag Chitnis, Program Director, 703-292-8441, email@example.com ), and molecular biophysics (contact: Kamal Shukla, Program Director, 703-292-8444, firstname.lastname@example.org).
